Baby Quilt

My younger sister is having a baby in the new year and so I thought it was a good excuse to make a baby quilt which I've thought about doing for a while. I'm not a seamstress in the least. And don't profess to be the most proficient of craftiest people around, although I LOVE being crafty (I'm just probably a jack of all trades, master of none!!). And since my sister isn't going to find out whether she's having a boy or girl I guess I need to make one of each to cover both bases!! I started making a baby girl quilt today. Now you should know that I like to make things up as I go along. Maybe because I can't figure out patterns and the like! So I'm probably doing it all wrong :) But anyway - I've cobbled together what is going to be the top. I need to find some fabric for the back and figure out how I'm going to finish it all off. But for now, here is a picture of it, work in progress! I took the pictures of it draped over the sewing machine which is why there is a light shining through!

I love it, too, Joanne. It's very cute. It makes me want to have a baby just so you'll send me one :)
